Did you know that nearly 96% of all Americans participate in Mother’s Day celebrations in some way?

For example, the holiday is the peak day for long distance carriers and one of the busiest days of the year for restaurants.

Mother’s Day is a time of commemoration and celebration for Mom. It is a time of breakfast in bed, family gatherings, and crayon scribbled “I Love You’s.” So join our Mother’s Day festivities as we present a new “Did You Know?” fact each day as we countdown to Mother’s Day on May 08, 2011!

Join millions of Americans in this public education campaign to take your sons and daughters (or grandchildren, nieces, nephews or friends’ children) to work today.

Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day is designed to expand opportunities for girls and boys, expose them to what adults in their lives do during the work day, show them the value of their education, and give them an opportunity to share how they envision their future. It is intended to be more than a career day. Each year, workplaces and adults around the country recognize its benefits and participate in the program to support our nation’s daughters and sons.*
